Selena Gomez seems to be the only child star to be making the leap to adult star without any major issues, but looks can be deceiving apparently.
Today, Gomez’s publicist revealed that the former Disney darling had checked herself into rehab for two weeks last month. According to her publicist, she did not check into the facility for substance abuse, like most media outlets would assume was the route cause.
Instead, they said that the singer checked in voluntarily for some “peace and therapy.” Gomez checked into The Meadows in Arizona for two weeks for treatment in their DAWN program. The DAWN program is targeted towards 18 to 26-year-olds for substance dependence, trauma, family dynamics, mental health and relapse prevention.
But while the publicist is singing this tune, TMZ is reporting just what everyone would assume lead to this decision, drugs.
Sources say Selena went into the facility for a combination of problems, including alcohol, pot and prescription Ambien. The source also claims that she’s addicted to Justin Bieber, why, we don’t want to know.
The secret rehab stint follows her announcement in December that she was canceling the Australian leg of her tour to take some time off. At the time, rumors were claiming that she had a drug addiction and was heading into rehab, or that she was fighting lupus, like we had written up, but Gomez just said she needed some time off.
This isn’t the first time she had gone into a rehab facility. When best friend Demi Lovato was in rehab, Gomez stayed with her during the hard times.
No matter what, she seems to be dong fine since just last week, she tweeted a picture of herself in the studio with the caption reading, “Therapy.”
